Become a Volunteer
We are always looking for volunteers to help with the operations and administration of the food pantry. Ideal candidates must have a sincere appreciation for all people – that is who we serve. We need people willing to devote the time to carry out their responsibilities.
As we grow, our volunteer needs have also grown. In addition to needing volunteers that help our clients shop in the pantry, we also need drivers, movers, and stockers. We also seek help in other areas that include writing, social media, publicity, statistics, accounting, and fundraising.
Generally volunteers work 2-5 hours per week. Some volunteer positions may be done remotely. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the Delaware Valley Food Pantry Volunteer Application.
